A Navy Cardigan

Behold, my new cardigan. 

Started back in March, this cardigan was supposed to be for me to wear though Autumn. Well, Autumn  is just about over, and winter is just about to hit, with snow forecast for the mountains this week. My cardigan is made using cotton yarn so it will now have to wait until spring for me to wear it.

The pattern is one of my own, using a basic cardigan pattern from  the Paton's 'Classic Knits for Women - Book 1245', and a lace pattern from  my 'The Harmony Guide To knitting Stitches' book , I  have created a border pattern to decorate my new cardigan. It is has been  worked in 8ply cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills . 

Now it's time to finish another UFO or two.
